Ok, it’s been awhile, but here I go with a few pictures of what I have done so far. Mind you, it’s far into the crafting of this desk, but everything will be clear I hope!
First, the desk in its upside down assembly set up.
It’s upside down because my wooden floor in the shop is not level, and it’s not easy to put the pocket screws into this thing by having to shim everything. Shim the workbench and be done with it!
Next, the axes are put on top and measured for their center positioning.
A bird’s eye view of the desk so far…
...I took down the sides because the screws were put in and looked good.
Add in a little Celtic knotwork design to go around the edges…
...I colored it red to make it easy to carve with the dremel later on.

And a close up of the corner with some straights
Currently awaiting the go-ahead for how it looks before I start chewing up the wood.
Now, to get to work on the drawers!
